Think about it. With the Johnny Manziel deal going down,many are talking about athletes needing to be compensated. He could speak out about the economic unfairness,and try to save the day. Maybe get the Afl-Cio involved in organizing these athletes too. Especially since probably 70% of college football and basketball players are black.

Johnny Manziel is neither black nor financially challenged, hardly a good example, IMHO. Isn't a full scholarship compensation enough?
